romney in colorado. both prepping for the big debate tomorrow night. remember when newt gingrich clocked the governor in the south carolina debate last spring, romney came back strong in florida. the man who helped prepare the governor for those debates, brett o'donnell joins us now. you really know this turf because you worked for john mccain when he ran against barak obama in 2008 and now in the primary season, you worked for mitt romney. let's assess the governor's strengths and weaknesses as a debater first. strengths? >> well, i think the governor is a very good messenger. he's a good orator, he can deliver a speech. he's very good when he's on message and on offense. as you saw in the debates in florida against newt gingrich when he got on offense, the governor was very effective. when he leans into a debate, he can be pretty effective. >> bill: all right. weakness? >> weaknesses, when he gets -- like most every politician, when he gets defensive, that's when he makes mistakes. the $10,000 bet came when governor romney was being defensive about his health care policy and there have
. the challenger, mitt romney has not been on the show. we have asked him to be on the show. we have -- any night, any time, short notice, whatever he wants, he can be on the show. he's got 39 days. now, i don't want to persuade anybody unnecessarily, but if he's not here in 39 days, don't vote for him. >> bill: no, not much of a chance that the majority of dave's audience will be supporting romney, but we do feel letterman's pain 'cause we're trying to get the governor on "the factor" as well. finally check five, because of all the interest in the upcoming debate this saturday evening between me and jon stewart, we put together a montage of past encounters. do you, jon stewart, have obama remorse? >> i think people feel a disappointment in that there was a sense that oh, jesus will walk on water and now you're looking like, oh, look that, it's just treading water. >> bill: you said he's let you down a couple of times when he didn't do a far left thing that you wanted. >> how far left am i? >> bill: it depends on the night. it depends on the ratings. >> you don't know much about me, do you. >> bi
. >> bill: not likely. as we discuss on the factor last night, libertyian situation and foreign policy in general has not arrested the attention of casual voters who remain locked into the economy and in many cases, ideology. mitt romney would be smart to seize on the libyan controversy as part of an overall competence challenge to mr. obama. if the economy remains bad and it does just check outearnings from ford and gm today, and america's overseas strategy is wobbling, which is seems to be, governor romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might ev
intense here economically that the only chance that mitt romney has is to come in on wednesday night and say you know what? this guy screwed up the economy. and if he continues down the road. do you think it's bad now? wait until you see it two years from now and pick off what's going to happen. it's almost like a doomsday scenario. that's what i would advise romney to do. >> well, three points. number one, i'm not talking about what you ought to do in debates and debates you don't make large speeches like that. what i'm talking about is the way he has run the campaign extremely small and tactical and not strategic. second, you brought up the libya thing and people aren't interesting. if romney had given a speech, had made the argument that this is part of -- simply a symptom of a larger development of a whole foreign policy in collapse, of the fact that the al qaeda which he was spiking the football for a week. al qaeda is back. we have got a new slogan for biden. which is bin laden dead. al qaeda alive. that was the meaning of all of this you could have attached the libya story. no
and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in those 70 million people thinking they were going to be a colts-packers fight, but they were surprised. i think the amount of that surprise worked in romney's favor. i will point out that the pugh survey is probably a little bit more republican than the electorate will end up being, which is something we've had a lot of discussions about. but i do think some of these number should be frightening to them of we've got 49-41 he leads on how to deal with job creation. >> bill: but you know what's interesting about this marjorie, is that, and i said this very early on, the president's support is thin. even people who back him are hesitant. you got the hard core left and they love him no matter what he does will be fine. the media, same. they love him, whatever he does will be fine. but the folks that are really not ideological, even if they
playing jinga in the run up to the start of the debate. mr. romney took it very easy. he did meet with senior staffers very easy. calming distractions and trying to relax what is going to be biggest audience and biggest night and biggest opportunity to really display what he can offer to the nation. and contrast it to president obama. peanut butter and honey was the meal of the day and went to the cheesecake factory all about not drilling, not doing the q and a type of stuff president obama did today. romney campaign wants to make sure he doesn't leave it in the locker room. they want him to show up at the debate. >> bill: the president and mrs. obama's anniversary, right, ed? >> it is, indeed. >> bill: happy anniversary to the first couple. 20 years they have been married? >> the president's staff says since they're not going to get a chance to celebrate tonight because it's pretty intensive night tonight. they are having other plans to deal with it tweeting each other today on twitter how much they love each other. it's a nice soft opportunity for the president to highlight his
